      At least the salvage company is on site. Maybe they were between salvage jobs and were looking for something to do...

              Ahh, but I'll do it for 500K.
              Let me ask, do you think you could plug that hole, doesn't have to be air tight, just stop the flow down to a few gal per minute? Once you do that you can float her and pump her out. Then you lift her up and make the repairs. I think it can be done.

              So, how much just to patch job the hole in the hull? I'm thinking 3'X5'? What material is the boat made of?

            I don’t care too much for sailing but the massive super yacht sailboats are beatitiful and their crews really take a lot of pride in their maintenance.

            the video of the collision is shocking

              I agree, not a sailboat fan but those big ones are beautiful. Although I imagine a lot of work to upkeep.

              He didn't seem to have an issue with the engines once he hit the sailboat.
